I hate to get off the games subject but I was directed to DOSBox in hopes that my dos app(not a game) might run in DOSBox.

The problem I am having is that my app needs about 74mb of mem to run:                                             
+
                                                                      Conventional mem 640K
+
                                                                      Reserved mem 384K
+
                                                                      Extended XMS mem 73K
+
                                                                      DOS running in High mem area

Right now I am running Win 95 and re-booting into DOS to run. Also using in the autoexec.bat file:
+
                                                                        HIMEM.SYS (BLV TO BE 16BIT)
+
                                                                        EMM386.EXE
+
                                                                        POWER.EXE
+
 
+
I am wanting this to run on my XP machine. I have tried many suggestions to no avail. I need this to run in XP for a variety of reasons. One being that I need ready access, via explorer, to the files the app creates.
+
 
+
You are about my last try. About to give up.

Thank You,

Hi
+
 
+
I don't know what program you are trying to run but if DBOX isnt working try using Virtual PC
+
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/winfamily/virtualpc/default.mspx
+
You will need your original DOS disks and Windows disks would really be an advantage as you need to install the additions CD to it via Windows.
+
 
+
Virtual PC is free and it is free to use.
+
 
+
When set up correctly it will allow for access to your virtual drives from your Host machine, this way you get the best of both worlds.
+
This is a business device, as there is absolutely no Direct3D or direct draw support.
+
 
+
Hope this helps
